For those of you dedicated followers of this blog, you might recall my post Podcasts = genius. Over the summer I’ve been fine-tuning my podcast listening, and wanted to share what I’ve found.
I’m come to think that that podcasts are a significant and pretty vibrant source of knowledge, insight and news. The best thing is listening to them brings to life the people involved – e.g. you may have their written material, but having listened to them speaking, they become a more of person: you can almost hear them reading out their words.
In my previous post, I mentioned listening to:
- Harvard IdeaCast
- Cambridge Judge Business School
- For Immediate Release
Donna Papacosta, owner of Trafalgar Communications, based in the Toronto area, works with clients all over the world, helping them to communicate with employees, customers and prospects. A former systems analyst and magazine journalist, Donna has combined her love of communications and technology into a thriving independent practice since 1985. Her roster of clients includes major manufacturers, leading organizations in healthcare and information technology, nonprofits, universities, government agencies, small- to mid-sized businesses and more.

I hope you have found this list of discoveries illuminating, and I’d be interested to hear your feedback and suggestions!
